Happy Sunday Everyone - it's going to be a lovely day!

Well, it seems that I was only able to post one - yes that's right, just one pic yesterday!!  I was so excited when the picture was uploaded.  I've been trying for months now.  The only way I can post pics is via Flickr.  That can be a good thing, however, I was alerted to the fact that when I do that, it takes the viewer to my 'Home' page - oh! oh!! bad girl!!  sorry guys, I had no idea that was happening as I post the URL connected to the pic.

That said, I decided to add a few more pics, under the relevant pages.  No such luck!! problems again!  was trying all day hoping the little gremlins went away.

So, now it's Sunday morning - and I tried again (not giving up).  Hooray!! Yipee!! Yee-Haa!! it worked (seems like I have a small window of opportunity - so I uploaded several) - not having time to write any notes - no way Jose, gotta post some more pics.

Time for breakfast - Vegemite on toast :)

Will fill you in - let's see how successful today will be.

Cheers!!

Gel pens - this is much brighter in real but I do like these colours too. I usually start a ZIA during my lunchbreak and finish it off when I get home from work - couldn't think of a title - thanks for looking :)

The Pillow -
Copada, Blossoms

I wanted to go beyond the string and still use the same pattern - the middle section reminded me of a pillow. so we have some pretty wallpaper, curtain material and another round cushion and the black and white section could even be a wicker chair :))

I used Prismacolour pencils - still have lots of shading practise to do. I get mixed up between the actual colour of the flower, where it needs to be in colour, but not necessarily shaded for shadow - if that makes sense!! lol - thanks for looking :))

A couple of patterns that came to me whilst on the phone yesterday. Gella reminds me of little stick men and Zoose reminds me of those top hats out of Dr Suess' children's books. enjoy! :))

I started this birthday card several months ago and then I couldn't remember where I put it. Seeing as I needed it this week I decided to search more thoroughly. The background is a version of 'X-glass' out of Sandy Bartholemew's Book, Yoga for your Brain. Thanks for looking :)

Here's another tangle using Pattern String No.1 - haven't entered this in The Diva's Weekly Challenge as I have 2 entries already. After using the pattern Cayke around the loop, I added these crater type pattern, and out came Missy Moos eyes, so from then on, String #1 became a girl!
